Associate Professor

I am interested in issues of discourse, power and multilingualism and how these are played out in social interaction and in institutional contexts and work with the intersections between language, migration, work and education. I teach multilingualism, Norwegian as a second language, communication and discourse analysis in teacher training and Master programs. I have a PhD in sociolinguistics from the Center for Multilingualism in Society across the Lifespan at the University of Oslo (MultiLing). My Doctoral thesis analyzes the negotiation of professional selves and multilingual repertoires in authentic job interviews in Norway.

I am a core group member in the project Norwegian across the Americas (2020-2024), financed by the Norwegian Reasearch Council and led by Associate Professor Kari Kinn (UiB). I am also part of the research group in the project Language across time and space: Following UN-refugees from the Democratic Republic of Congo to Norway, led by professor Guri Bordal Steien (HINN)

In 2021 I published an edited volume on second language acquisition of Norwegian by adult learners together with Professor Marte Monsen Andrespråkslæring hos voksne. Vitenskapelige innsikter og didaktiske refleksjoner
